Presentation Skills

You are called to present the status of your project, the results of your program, or your budgetary mid-term review in front of an audience. The presentation itself may be short but the impression you will make will be lasting. So it is worth your time to learn the ropes at excellent presentations and secure your audience’s support.

This seminar teaches how to prepare for and deliver presentations that are to the point, informative and persuasive. The method shows how to match the design and contents of the presentation to the audience’s expectations and with appropriate aids. Importantly, we work on the presenter’s stance and language, and his or her relationship with the audience at it happens.

Adapted to the participants’ fields and current needs, the seminar covers:

  • Audience analysis
  • Needs assessment (if required)
  • Presentation design according to purpose
  • Presentation structure and time management
  • Use of aids and tools (visuals, films, realia)
  • Prioritization of messages
  • Chronology of points
  • Physical and psychological stance, appearance
  • Rhetorical skills
  • Relationship with audience.
